Yahoo Contributor Network

Every Tuesday morning, I will share my list of the top 10 fantasy football happenings from the week just passed. These can be used for trade fodder, players to target, etc.

1) Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson injured his knee and should miss 4-6 weeks. CJ Spiller replaced Jackson and played very well.

3) Unheralded WRs Stephen Hill (New York Jets) and Kevin Ogletree (Dallas Cowboys) hauled in two touchdowns each.

4) Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck targeted Reggie Wayne an NFL-high 18 times.

5) Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco carved up the Cincinnati Bengals defense with an impressive zip on his ball.

6) Tennesee Titans RB Chris Johnson gained 4 yards on 11 carries. It wouldn't be the first time that a pure speed back dropped off the table (see Willie Parker).

7) Washington Redskins QB RG III outplayed Drew Brees in the Superdome. In doing so, we haven't seen a rookie debut like this since, well, last year.

8) Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick struggled mightily vs. Cleveland, committing four turnovers (could easily have been six).

10) Green Bay Packers WRs Randall Cobb and James Jones significantly out-produced Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson.
